iSCSI drivers on linux issues

I have installed and compiled the 3.4.2 driver on a couple of systems, with no problems & can use storage on our new 5428-2's.

I need to add the driver to 30 production systems now, all are running the same kernel as my dev boxes, 2.4.20-30.9smp. If I copy over the files the README says are part of the driver, it complains about missing dependancies, depmod -ae returns,'Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-30.9smp/kernel/misc/iscsi_module.o'

Surely there's got to be a better way than installing the compiler / kernel headers / source on all these machines?

Re: iSCSI drivers on linux issues

Are you compiling the driver into the kernel and copying that kernal image over or are you trying to do modules?

If you are compiling the kernel and then copying that image to other boxes and using lilo or grub to boot these then you should not have module messages. If you are using modules then you must get the iscsi driver code into a directory and as per the README do the install process.

Please clarify if you compiled the iscsi driver into the kernel image or implementing the iscsi separately as modules.

Re: iSCSI drivers on linux issues

I'm using modules.

I did try tar-ing up the build directory and then running a make install on the new box. If that should work I'll try that again on Monday - I think I was missing some of the stuff called.
